Course Description

The capstone course where students apply newly learned skills towards solving real-life HR problems. Through teamwork exercises and a comprehensive case study, students build effective HR tools that they can bring into their own professional practice. Open only to those who have completed the first five courses or former graduates of the HR Management Certificate Program.


The capstone class is a culmination of the 5 previous HR courses and requires a group project.  Because this is a concentrated course, attendance is mandatory in order to receive the professional certificate.
